Essie Polishes

Essie hasn't been one of my favorite brands. That's not to say I don't like the Essie polishes I do have- I just haven't been inspired to try a lot of their polishes until now.

Marshmallow, Main Squeeze, Demure Vixen, Coat Azure, and Smokin' Hot.

This is 4 coats of Marshmallow.

Marshmallow is a white jelly polish.

Yes, this takes 4 careful coats but the results are so worth it!

It looks so squishy!

This is 3 coats of Main Squeeze.

Main Squeeze is a sheer grey polish with purple microglitter.

This would probably be better for layering.

Here you can see a bit of the microglitter.

This is 3 coats of Demure Vixen.

Demure Vixen is a soft sheer taupe-purple with purple shimmer.

I thought I would like this one more than I did.

It's a bit too soft for me.

This is 2 coats of Coat Azure. Though, I think it could have been 1 careful coat.

Coat Azure is a medium blue with light blue and silver shimmer.

I think I've fallen madly in love with this polish.

This polish is so lovely. It looks so buttery.

This is 2 coats of Smokin' Hot.

Smokin' Hot is a dark grey creme with purple undertones.

I really like this polish, too. I feel like it's one of those weird shades everyone should own.

It's also super slick and shiny.

What do you think about Essie polishes?


  1. Smokin Hot and Coat Azure are two polishes I NEEED!

  2. I didn't like Coat Azrue for the longest time but now I think its gorgeous! Smokin Hot looks great on you.

  3. I love Marshmallow by default :p

    I too thought I would like DV way better, but every time I put it on I feel like my hands look slightly sick. blah oh well. I love Coat Azure and Smoken Hot on you! Must find Coat Azure!

  4. love all the colors! coat azure is def my fav.

  5. I like Marshmallow and Coat Azure, but I'm really loving Smokin Hot.
    As for Essie polishes in general, they have a lot of pinks and reds and sheers, which isnt really my thing, BUT there are quite a few gems in the Essie brand, which are unique and beautiful colors. Those are the ones I latch on to. :D

  6. I skipped SH at Ulta, now I wish I wouldn't have! Weak. Haha, it's cool! +You make Coat Azure look so nice:) I have a couple untried Essies I need to get to.

  7. love all shades! which top coat were you using? they look so shiny!

  8. I really like the Demure Vixen. Such a nice Rosey pink

  9. I have been trying to get my hands on CA forever but I've been at school with *gasp* no beauty supply shops nearby (I go to school in the middle of nowhere). It's an absolutely stunning polish. I should have snatched it up the last time I was home. Maybe I'll go today and get it! Great post, I love all these colors!

  10. oh woww!! demure vixen and coat azure looks amazingg!!! drool! i definitely want!!

  11. God I love Marshmallow!! It's perfect!!

  12. Coat Azure was my first Essie polish and I am in love with it, too! I recommend Essie's Mesmerize if you love blue polishes in general. It's a bright, rich cream (I think - I'm not an expert on the various types) that is wonderfully opaque. Great for summer! It reminds me of the sky in the Carolinas on a perfectly cloudless summer afternoon.

  13. Nikki- Essie is sold at Walmart and most drug stores so I'm sure you could find it!

    Courtney- Yep, I have Mesmerize and it's a great color!

    Thanks everyone.

  14. Beauty Addict- I'm not using top coat in these swatches.:)
